Need a laptop?  

If you need a laptop or tablet, complete the on-line, Tech Rental Form as soon as possible. If you do not see what you need, please consider applying for a Cal Poly Cares grant, even if you have previously applied and been denied or received a grant.

If you are registered with the DRC and need assistive technology, contact the DRC at or at 805-756-1395. 

Wi-Fi Service Options

Several internet service providers are now offering free and low-cost internet service to students without a reliable connection. We strongly encourage you to contact your local internet provider for more information about these programs.

If you are near another California State University (CSU) campus, the WiFi-Eduroam is accessible on all CSUs.

For financial assistance to help cover unexpected expenses, including internet fees, related to the disruption of campus operations from COVID-19, please apply for a grant through the Cal Poly Cares program. This includes students who are not federal Title IV eligible such as international and undocumented students.
